HOUSTON (June 12, 2013)--Former President George H.W. Bush, who’s known for his love of colorful, outlandish footwear, donned Superman socks to celebrate his 89th birthday Wednesday.
Bush spent Wednesday with his family at their summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine.
A birthday photo released by his office in Houston showed a smiling Bush on a golf cart, wearing red and blue socks with the DC Entertainment comic hero logo complete with tiny capes on the back.
The 41st president has marked past birthdays with stunts such as skydiving, but he has had medical issues and spent nearly two months in a Houston hospital with a bronchitis-related cough before he was discharged in January.
Bush's wife, Barbara, turned 88 last Saturday.
